This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:
Read all of our Blizzard Sheeva 9 staff reviews
By: Samantha B
This ex-racer has officially been converted to freeride-style skis thanks to the Sheeva 9. Growing up in the midwest, I'm used to handling all sorts of crud and icy conditions- after taking the Sheevas out for a spin, I know they can handle it all! Thanks to the strategically placed metal under foot, these skis feel solid on-piste and the edges held amazingly across icy patches. The lighter tips and tails make it really maneuverable- this is truly an all-mountain ski!
Woof... This ski really can do it all! I feel totally comfortable bringing this ski with me anywhere in the resort. With metal underfoot, it can absolutely rip on groomers and you can really feel the power of the ski directly under your feet. With the tips and tails left metal-free, it leaves a lot of room for playfulness and liveliness, making it super versatile. The Sheeva 9 is a great option for a someone looking for that magical one-ski-quiver that can handle any conditions at the resort. All of us ladies at Powder7 are still drooling over this one, and I can not wait until I can ride it again!
2020 Blizzard Sheeva 9 Description:
The narrowest ski in the Sheeva collection, the Sheeva 9 features a bit more metal than its big sisters. The titanal layer underfoot extends further into the tips and tails before tapering to carbon. Comparatively, the 9 skis even better on hard snow, while also retaining much of the playfulness and soft snow performance of the other Sheevas. They are wide enough to realistically handle most resort days, while also being light enough for alpine touring. The ultimate gist: the Sheeva 9 tries to make skiing every type of terrain and snow more fun than ever. It passes with flying colors.
